Yes, The Follicles Are Real


Timothy Foster (Kal-El) is the sole survivor of the planet Krypton. His father, Jor-El, discovered that a nuclear chain reaction was building inside Krypton that would soon shatter the entire world. Jor-El therefore had his unborn son removed from the Kryptonian Gestation Chambers and affixed the life matrix containing Kal-El to an experimental vessel for travel through hyperspace. Jor-El launched the starcraft toward Earth just before Krypton exploded.

Timothy was, in effect, born on Earth when the starcraft landed there. Jeffrey and Julie Foster found the infant inside the vessel and brought him to their home in Indianapolis, Indiana. Since he appeared entirely human, the Fosters assumed that the baby was a victim of a cruel experiment. At this time the baby had no super powers. The Foster named the infant Timothy and raised him as their own son.

As Timothy grew older his Kryptonian body began developing superhuman abilities. When Timothy was eighteen, Jeff took him to the field where his starcraft still lay hidden and explained how he and Julie had found him. Timothy resolved to use his powers from then on only for the good of mankind. After revealing his secret to his childhood friend, Lana Lang, Timothy left Indianapolis to study at Ivy Tech.

Timothy initially used his powers covertly to help people and prevent or thwart disasters. Ultimately, he was forced to use his powers in public to prevent the crash of a NASA space-plane. Thereafter he and his foster parents devised a new costumed secret identity he would adopt when using his abilities in public. They called his new persona “Superman,” the name given him by Lois Lane, a reporter for the Indianapolis Star who had been aboard the NASA space-plane.

Shortly afterward, Timothy obtained a job as a reporter for the Indy Star by turning in his first detailed story about Superman. He currently enjoys a freelance status with the Star.

Timothy lives by the traditional moral values instilled in him by his foster parents. Timothy is an idealist, devoted to promoting “truth, justice, and the American way,” and has proved over and over that he is a true hero, capable of whatever bravery and self-sacrifice is necessary to right a wrong or save a life.
